Setka and Zapier

How to set up Setka Cloud API and Zapier integration.

You can export posts from your Setka Account via Setka Content Cloud API. Setka Zapier integration uses this API to automatically export posts to other services and CMS.

This is how you can set automatic posts export to any CMS with Zapier integration, like Shopify, Ghost, Webflow, etc.

Zapier integration requires access to the Setka Content Cloud API. Contact our customer support to get access.

To integrate Setka with other services via Zapier, create Zap with Setka as a trigger:

Step 1. Add the Setka Post API integration

Zapier connects with Setka via webhooks or by checking the updates in some periods of time. To make the Zapier integration possible, go to the Setka account and proceed to Integrations > Integrate Setka Posts > Other CMS.

The Post API integration will be added. You will see your license key and the ability to add webhooks. This integration will be used in step 4.
